What this Privacy Policy Covers

This Privacy Policy applies to information we collect from all sources, including without limitation, in connection with our websites, mobile sites, mobile applications, mobile widgets, electronic newsletters, and communications (collectively, the "Services") that we provide. We are responsible to ensure that the information you submit to us is used only in accordance with the terms of this Privacy Policy. This Privacy Policy applies to all personal data collected or submitted through our Service.

This Privacy Policy provides information on how we collect your personal data, what types of personal data we collect, how we use your personal data, with whom your personal data may be shared, how we protect and how long we store data, and your choices regarding how that data is used.

Cloudnine Weather is the data controller of your personal data collected from the Services and is subject to the European Union ("EU") General Data Protection Regulation (the "GDPR") effective as of May 25, 2018. We are a data controller subject to the GDPR only insofar as we are offering goods or services to consumers in the EU or where our website may be used to monitor individuals’ behavior as far as it takes place in the EU. Except for the foregoing, this Privacy Policy is subject to the laws of the United States ("US"), including all applicable privacy regulations.

By using the Services, you will be provided the opportunity to expressly consent to our collection, use, and disclosure of your personal data in the manner described in this Privacy Policy. If you do not provide us such express consent regarding your personal data being transferred or used as described in this Privacy Policy, you will not be able to utilize the full functionality of the Services or your Cloudnine Weather user account (the "Account") may be deactivated should such consent be a requisite for accessing the functionality or feature you request.

Any capitalized terms used but not defined herein shall have the meaning provided for such terms in our Terms of Use ("Terms").


We collect information from you and about you from third parties, sometimes referred to as personal data, in the following ways:

  4. Through cookies, web beacons, tracking technologies, and similar technologies, whether implemented by us or any third party. "Cookies" are small files that your web browser places in your device’s memory;
  5. Information submitted by or obtainable from your internet service provider, software, computer, mobile device, or another method of accessing the Services (which you may be able to control through the settings of your software and devices); and,
  6. Information received from third parties, including without limitation information submitted by or available from any marketplace, store, social media network, or other services, website, or application that you use, which refers you to Cloudnine Weather, or which contains or embeds any of the Services, content, or user content.


The information we collect will vary based on your use of the Services and information and actions you elect to take. Based on such actions, the information and data submitted to us will vary (for example, if you elect to create an Account, certain information will be requested, some of which is required to create the Account and some of which is optional). Based on the foregoing, the information we collect may include:

  1. Personal identifying information, including without limitation, your email address and password;
  2. Device and connection information, including without limitation details regarding your IP address, browser, operating system, and screen display;

Cloudnine Weather does not store any credit card information. Cloudnine Weather uses a third party vendor which directly receives and stores personal credit card data, and manages credit card processing for subscriptions and transactions.


Except as set forth herein, your personal data will not be knowingly provided by Cloudnine Weather to third parties without your permission.

Among other uses set forth in this policy, we may process your personal data we receive because it is necessary for the performance of a contract with you, including, once you accept our Terms, to create an Account and authorize us to use your personal data, to:

  6. Facilitate your experience through cookies which allow the Services to recognize you if you visit multiple pages during the same session, so that you don’t need to re-enter your information multiple times. Once you close your browser, session cookies expire and no longer have any effect; and

We may also process your personal data because it is necessary for our or a third party’s legitimate interest. Our "legitimate interests" include our interests in offering and operating the Services in an efficient and sustainable manner, in accordance with all applicable legal and regulatory requirements (including our legal obligations laid down in United States federal or state law and any regulatory duties we are subject to, whether in the US or EU. In this respect, we may use your personal data to:

  1. Send periodic emails or other communications to you;
  2. Generate anonymized information aggregated with other users’ information, which does not allow you to be identified or contacted ("Aggregate Information"), to improve the Service and our offerings. For example, we might generate Aggregate Information regarding the number of users of our site and the activities they conduct while on our site. We might also generate Aggregate Information that "60 percent of our users live west of the Mississippi" or that "30 percent of our users have looked at the Colorado Daily Snow in Boulder County.";
  3. Administer any surveys, promotions, rewards, or other programs run by Cloudnine Weather or its vendors from time-to-time;
  4. Perform statistical analysis, customer evaluation, and other administrative or business analysis for our own internal purposes;
  5. Outsourcing selected back-office functions to third party controllers for the purposes of efficient, fast and secure access to data, and the efficient management of our Services, but only if they meet the requirements of Section 6 below;
  6. To prevent transactional fraud; and,
  7. To process your requests, purchases, transactions, and payments and prevent transactional fraud.

We may also process your personal data for our compliance with our legal obligations. In this respect, we may use your personal data for the following:

  2. As described to you when collecting your personal data or as otherwise set forth in the California Consumer Privacy Act ("CCPA") or our CCPA Privacy Notice for California Residents; or,
  3. To assist with investigations (including criminal investigations) carrie d out by the police and other competent authorities, where those authorities are acting in compliance with US and EU laws, including laws of any EU Member State where we are providing Services.

In addition, we may also process your personal data:

  1. To enforce any of our rights under the Terms, this Privacy Policy, any Service specific terms and conditions, or any other rights we may have; or,
  2. When we have your consent to do so.

Aggregated Information or anonymized information (information that does not identify you personally) may be used for any purpose


We share your personal data with:

  1. You or any person with your log-in credentials;
  2. Cloudnine Weather employees, in order to operate, optimize, improve, and/or further develop the Services;
  3. Third party processors who meet the requirements in Section 6, as necessary to submit and process payments, collect any amounts owed, or otherwise address any payment obligations or issues;
  4. Our third-party processors who meet the requirements in Section 6, for the purposes of improving the Services or our business;
  5. Governmental authorities, regulatory bodies, law enforcement, or other authorized persons to the extent required by law or deemed by us to be necessary, appropriate, or in the best interests of Cloudnine Weather or the public in connection with a request from the foregoing;
  6. To the extent you expressly authorize us to do so, affiliated or unaffiliated third parties for marketing purposes; or,
  7. A third party, subject to a reasonable obligation of confidentiality, in connection with any merger, acquisition, asset sale, financing, or other capital transaction involving the sale of all, or substantially all, of our assets.

We do not sell your personal data. Any data shared with a third party is anonymized data. Geolocation data used to provide the Services is cached on your device and deleted when you log out of your account. Geolocation data is not sent to our servers.


If your personal data is subject to GDPR, in the course of providing the Services to you, we may transfer your personal data outside of the European Economic Area ("EEA"), principally to our servers in the United States; this means that your personal data will not have the automatic protection of European data protection laws (including the GDPR) which apply in the EEA. In these circumstances, in order to ensure that your personal data continues to have adequate protection when it is transferred outside the EEA, your personal data will only be transferred on one of the following bases:

  1. Where the transfer is subject to one or more of the appropriate safeguards for international transfers prescribed by applicable law (for example, standard data protection clauses adopted by the European Commission);
  2. a European Commission decision provides that the country or territory to which the transfer is made ensures an adequate level of protection; or
  3. there exists another situation where the transfer is permitted under applicable law (for example, where we have your explicit consent).

You can obtain more details of the protection given to your personal data when it is transferred outside the EEA by contacting us using the details set out below.


We require third-party controllers to whom we disclose your personal data to contractually agree to (i) only process such personal data for the limited and specified purposes consistent with the consent you provide; (ii) provide the same level of protection to your personal data as required under this Privacy Policy; and (iii) notify us if the third-party controller makes a determination that it can no longer meet the foregoing obligations.

In addition, when we transfer your personal data to a third party processor acting as our agent, we will: (i) transfer such personal data only for the limited and specified purposes consistent with the request or consent you provide; (ii) contractually require the processor to provide at least the same level of privacy protection as is required by this Privacy Policy; and (iii) require the processor to notify us if it makes a determination that it can no longer meet its obligation to provide the same level of protection as is required by this Privacy Policy. Should we receive any such notice, we will take reasonable and appropriate steps to stop and remediate unauthorized processing.


We use encryption and authentication tools to protect the security of personal data that you share with us. However, no data transmission over the internet (or, with respect to our mobile services, over cellular phone networks) can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect personal data, we cannot and do not guarantee or warrant the security of any information you transmit to or from the Service, and you do so at your own risk.

Except as set forth herein, we restrict access to your personal data such that those Cloudnine Weather employees, contractors, and agents who need to know such personal data in order to operate, develop, or improve our Services or otherwise fulfill their obligations to us are bound by confidentiality obligations and may be subject to discipline, including termination and criminal prosecution, if they fail to meet these obligations.


We will retain your personal data for as long as your Account on the Services remains in good standing, and for as long as permitted or required for legal and regulatory purposes after your Account is terminated. Please note that Aggregate Information, which is not personal data, will be retained indefinitely to improve the functionality of the Service.


You have the following rights in relation to our processing of your personal data. Please note that these rights are not absolute, and we may be entitled to refuse requests where exceptions apply.

  1. To obtain access to, and copies of, the personal data that we hold about you;
  2. To require us to correct the personal data we hold about you if it is incorrect. You are able to update certain personal data that you have provided to us when you opened your Account, by updating the "Your Profile > My Account" section under "Settings" on the mobile application or website;
  3. To require us to erase your personal data in certain circumstances;
  4. To require us to restrict our data processing activities in certain circumstances;
  5. To object, on grounds relating to your particular situation, to any of our particular processing activities where you feel this has a disproportionate impact on you;
  6. To receive from us the personal data we hold about you which you have provided to us, in a reasonable format specified by you, including for the purpose of you transmitting that personal data to another data controller;
  7. Where our processing is based on your consent, you may withdraw that consent, without affecting the lawfulness of our processing based on consent before its withdrawal. You are able to change certain privacy choices by updating the "My Account" section on the website or application.

If you are not satisfied with how we are processing your personal data, you can make a complaint to a data protection supervisory authority in the US or EU, as applicable, including the data protection regulator in the EU country where you are located.

If you do not agree with this Privacy Policy, please discontinue use of our Services. You also have the option of setting your browser to reject "cookies." However, doing this will hinder performance and negatively impact your experience while using our Services.

If you have signed up to receive our e-mails and prefer not to receive marketing information from us, follow the "unsubscribe" instructions provided on any marketing e-mail you receive from this Service. Any unsubscribe or opt-out from our sharing of your personal data or communications in accordance with this Privacy Policy will be effective after we have received your request, verified your identity (if applicable), and had a reasonable time to implement your request.

California Residents - Your California Privacy Rights

California’s "Shine the Light" law, Civil Code section 1798.83, requires certain businesses to respond to requests from California customers asking about the business’ practices related to disclosing personal data to third parties for the third parties’ direct marketing purposes. Alternatively, businesses may have in place a policy not to disclose personal data of customers to third parties for the third parties’ direct marketing purposes if the customer has exercised an option to opt-out of such information-sharing.


Some of our Services contain links to other sites whose information practices may be different than ours. Visitors should consult the other sites’ privacy notices as we have no control over information that is submitted to, or collected by, these third parties.

Cloudnine Weather Services covered by this privacy statement sometimes may offer content (e.g., contests, sweepstakes, or promotions) that is sponsored by or co-branded with identified third parties. By virtue of these relationships, the third parties may obtain personally identifiable information that visitors voluntarily submit to participate in the site activity. We have no control over these third parties’ use of this information. The site will notify you (in its privacy policy or elsewhere) at the time of requesting personally identifiable information if these third parties will obtain such information.

We also use the services of reputable third-party processors to provide us with data collection, reporting and web analytics, as well as to assist with delivery of relevant content, marketing messages, and advertisements. All of our disclosure to such third parties shall be subject to the requirements under Section 6 if any of your personal data is transferred to such third parties. We, our third-party service providers, advertisers and/or partners may also place web beacons for these third parties. For more information on how our sites may use third-party ad servers and your ability to opt-out of targeted advertising from such third-party ad servers, please see the section below on "Third Party Ad Servers".

Any information linked to on a third-party website or domain, or embedded in the Services but hosted on a third-party domain, belongs to such third party and any information submitted or collected as a result of the access or use thereof is subject to the privacy policy of such third-party.


Our advertising service vendors and other third parties will at times also use tracking technologies to serve you advertisements tailored to interests you have shown by browsing on our website and other sites, applications, destinations, and services you have visited, and for other lawful business purposes. In doing so, these third parties will collect non-personally identifiable data including for example the make, model, settings, specifications (e.g., CPU speed, connection speed, browser type, operating system, device identifier) and geographic location of your computer, mobile or other device, as well as date/time stamp, IP address, pages visited, time of visits, content viewed, ads viewed, the site(s), application(s), destination(s), and/or service(s) you arrived from, and other clickstream data. The use of tracking technologies by third parties is subject to their own privacy policies, not this Privacy Policy, and we have no responsibility or liability in connection therewith. If you do not want the services that tracking technologies provide, you may be able to opt-out of certain of such tracking technologies or limit such tracking technologies by visiting, using script-blockers, and modifying the tracking options in your web browser, phone, computer, or other device or software. We do not guarantee that any such actions will prevent or limit the Tracking Technologies or that any opt-out decision will be honored by any third party.
